Blackwell North Amer
For everything from abandoned children to zoos, a saint has been designated as a special intercessor. The entries in this unique sourcebook detail the saint's life, date of canonization, and the reason for the saint's relevance in a particular area. And it is also simple to locate the patron saint for hundreds of areas by consulting the directory's easy-to-use listing of concerns and subjects, which includes specific professions, such as nurses, teachers, military personnel, or construction workers; places; acts of nature or weather; and others as varied as illnesses, family problems, love and marriage, employment, and academic exams.
Also included for each saint are baptismal names and feast days so that readers can choose ways to honor their patrons. An index cross-references each saint to all areas of responsibility. Functional and accessible, The Directory of Saints is the perfect resource in an area of rapidly growing interest.
